I've been spinning some of the fibers I bought at Black Sheep Gathering. Here is Dicentra's blueface leicester in "Autumn" which I then plied with Dicentra's merino/tussah silk in "Edoras". The pictures don't do justice to the deep, deep colors -- much darker in person.
This yarn is slated for a sock knitting project.
And last week, I needed some empty bobbins and ended up plying some singles I had left on a couple of bobbins. I ended up with enough off of those two bobbins to make a pair of fingerless gloves. The fiber is merino/angora/silk plied with merino/tussah silk.
SPINNING AT COMMON THREADS ON FRIDAY 7/18
